Metzengerstein is a Tuscany-based trio including members of art collective Ambient-Noise Session who had their debut tape Albero Specchio released by Expo 70 Justin Wright’s Sonic Meditations back in 2013 (and recently on wax by HARSH). Alchemy To Our Days is a brand new sixtrack album where the band explores hallucinating sounds and ritual, mythological abstractions even deeper. Featuring field recordings from the Temple in Jerusalem collected by Giovanni Lami, sax incursions by Virginia Genta from Jooklo Duo and trumpets by Marco Baldini, Metzengerstein have achieved one more intoxicating work able to convey primordial and mystical feelings, wisely manipulating the tools of kraut rock, space rock and psychedelia.
Originally released on cassette by Yerevan Tapes, Alchemy To Our Days will be out on wax by Kohlhaas on September 2015 featuring a new cover artwork by italian artist Moallaseconda.

This isn't the album you listen to tirelessly day in and day out. But that's not what they're trying to achieve, either. In Sun and Violence, Heroin in Tahiti act as shamans inviting us on an adventure promising to excite the chakra. Jakob Bellamy

If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
